Dear Mr. President,

I know that you receive 20,000 letters a day and that you actually read 10 of them every day. I really do respect you for trying to get a pulse on what is going on out here.

It is popular to talk about a “War on Women” and we hear it all the time now in the press (just today, 3-5-12, the Arkansas Times Blog went on and on about it)We need to put things in perspective.

The ‘War on Women’ — a Rhetorical Distraction

Posted by Roger Pilon

Today POLITICO Arena asks:

Now that Rush Limbaugh has apologized, will voters see the Democrats’ “war on women” language as overkill?

My response:

We’re in the season of rhetorical overkill. Rush Limbaugh’s vile attack last week on Sandra Fluke was reprehensible. So too is the Democratic campaign to paint a Republican “war on women” — not least because it treats women as a monolithic class, ignoring the many women who grasp what’s at issue here — liberty.

ObamaCare is a major step toward socialized health care. You can pretend otherwise — the “war on women” rhetoric aims at that — but the coercive elements inherent in any socialized scheme come to the surface when conflicts like the one before us arise.

And it’s only the beginning. Soon enough, as costs to “the public” mount (the only costs that matter in socialized arrangements), Republicans will be talking about a “war on the elderly,” and they’ll be right. After all, “We’re all in this together.” We have that on high authority. Welcome to the world of all against all.

Thank you so much for your time. I know how valuable it is. I also appreciate the fine family that you have and your committment as a father and a husband.

Sincerely,

Everette Hatcher III, 13900 Cottontail Lane, Alexander, AR 72002, ph 501-920-5733, lowcostsqueegees@yahoo.com
